With reference to your letter of October 27, 1988 regarding the height of a bedroom window sill.
We agree with your observations relating to Articles 22.214.171.124. and 126.96.36.199. With respect to Articles 188.8.131.52. and 184.108.40.206., these apply generally to egress from dwelling units, in the circumstances described in these Articles, which may or may not apply to bedrooms.
Therefore, whilst the height of sill provided in Article 220.127.116.11. may be desirable in application to Article 18.104.22.168., it is not strictly applicable.
